River Lodge by Dulini


Experience the heartland of Africa

Occupying 10,000ha of a private concession, River Lodge by the Dulini Collection places you in the hub of the reserve where wildlife, quite literally, shares your doorstep.

Wildlife encounters include morning and afternoon/evening game drives, interpretive bush walks and bird-watching. Rangers stay in touch with one another, to keep constant track of the animals’ movements, so guests will never miss that photo-moment. Strict vehicle limits at sightings and sensitive off-road driving practices ensure that guests experience exceptional sightings.

Taking refuge from the zealous African sun, sheltering under a grove of ebony trees on the banks of the seasonal Sand river, are the 8 exquisite suites that make up Dulini River Lodge. The suites are luxuriously decorated and boast dramatic river views, as well as a private plunge pool. The guest sitting and dining areas are filled with deep sofas and a giant sausage tree provides shade for long, lazy afternoon lunches. Delicious evening meals, complimented by the finest selection of South African wines, are shared in the traditional open-air boma under a star-studded sky.

Tucked away in a quiet corner in the west of the Sabi Sand Region, Dulini River Lodge sits in the shade of a grove of ebony trees, right on the banks of the seasonal Sand River. Dulini is the kind of lodge where you could wake to find a herd of elephant competing for space on the water’s edge.
